Rainbow Love Tote Bag
In 2016, prior to creating a store within Zazzle, I found out from my husband’s cousin that his tween daughter/our niece had a tendency to often follow her friends’ needs and wants while neglecting her own.
My heart went out to her because I strongly sensed that she could use motherly love (since her mother was absent from her life due to being a drug addict).
I was able to deeply empathize with her, and when I decided to make her a home-made gift, I received an idea that I trust was from Spirit within.
Using various colors of fine point permanent markers, and different styles of writing, I wrote on the top of the white tote bag, “Anastasia, Be Free-Spirit” and drew a blue dolphin right below it. Note: I had an urge to look up the meaning of her name, and it means Resurrection
In addition, I added reminders throughout the rest of the bag about self-respect, self-compassion, self-love, knowing what one likes and dislikes and embracing them, being one’s own BFF first and foremost (and others will follow), knowing one’s self-worth, being confident and assertive, honoring one’s feelings (language of the soul), trusting one’s intuition, being bold, having fun, etc.
I realized that she may be too young to fully understand such concepts, but I trust that she will in Divine perfect timing and order if she’s drawn to them.
My intention was simply to share with her all that I wished my own inner-child had received throughout childhood, especially unconditional love.
I also dedicate this bag to all other souls out there who could benefit from upliftment (to include encouragement, deep healing and humor), empowerment, and inspiration, whether children or the wounded aspect of inner child within adults (also see another version toward the bottom of this post—an all-over-print, cross body bag for teens and adults only).
Note: I recently ordered five of these tote bags for our friend’s five daughters (biological and step children)—two of whom had a similar situation as Anastasia (they had a drug addict mother).
I wrote the following review for Zazzle, and also included three photos:

Tell us what you thought about this product:*
I was so delighted to see how amazing all five, personalized tote bags turned out! The girls (our friend’s kids)—ranging from years 5 to 13—were so excited about them, which made my heart sing!! ^_^
The overall quality of the product is great, it seems pretty durable so far, and it exceeded my expectations.
And last but not least (as stated in title), the tote bag was designed in a highly creative manner, and it’s very colorful, humorous, uplifting, empowering, and inspiring.
It’s a wonderful influence and a great daily reminder for kids of various ages, and even for adults due to its integrated profound wisdom.
How did the printing turn out?*
The colors are vivid, the image quality is great, and the printing of even small details is perfect.
The following version is an all-over-print cross body bag (comes in tote style too) for teens to adults only (due to the clean, sex-themed, Black Widow cartoon):
I dedicate this bag to my adult daughter, whom I initially made this for on her birthday, and to all other souls out there (wounded aspect of inner child within adults) who could benefit from upliftment (to include encouragement, deep healing and humor), empowerment, and inspiration.
